On the brink of a new era in sustainable and renewable energy, the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre will serve as the hub for the much-anticipated ASEAN Sustainable Energy Week (ASEW) and Electric Vehicle Asia (EVA) 2023, to take place between 30th August and 1st September. In synergy with the vital goals of harnessing efficient energy use and enhancing EV technology, the epicenter of the event will be renewable energy and sustainability.

The event is a remarkable undertaking between the Energy Ministry of Thailand and the Electric Vehicle Association of Thailand. This collaborative endeavour assembles in the backdrop of a growing global concern towards heatwaves, droughts, and rampant natural disasters attributed to escalating climate change – an alarming wake-up call for humanity.

Electric Vehicle Asia 2023 aims to uncover the curtain from superior EV technologies, showcasing the cutting-edge innovations by the world’s leading and highly advanced EV manufacturers.

Aligning with the urgent mission to curb climate change, Thailand has established lofty views of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 and a goal to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2065.

The Energy Ministry of Thailand is ardently working on the National Energy Plan (NEP), committed to bolstering energy security, and scouting towards a horizon of sustainability. The primary focus lies in stepping up the proportion of renewable and clean energy for electricity generation, projected to reach at least a half by the year 2050. Concurrently, Thailand is also dedicated to boosting its EV production to account for 30% of the total auto manufacturing by 2030.

The pivot towards electric vehicles has garnered an encouraging response from consumers and investors alike, as noted by Mr Utain Supatti, the Vice President of the Electric Vehicle Association of Thailand (EVAT). This shift can be attributed to the rapidly evolving charging network which escalated to over 4,600 stations by May.

Aiding the shift towards sustainable energy, the government has extended a supportive hand through a set of incentives. These include chopping the excise tax on EVs from 8% to a mere 2%, accompanied by an appealing 18,000-baht subsidy for the prospective EV buyers.

ASEAN Sustainable Energy Week 2023 has successfully captivated the interest from various corners including the government, consumers, and businesses. “It is extremely heartening to witness the echelon of responses from all sectors”, expressed Sanchai Noomboonnam, the General Manager of the event’s organiser, Informa Markets (Thailand). The theme encapsulating the essence of the event correctly points out to be “Powering the Clean Energy Transition Towards Carbon Neutrality Goal”.
